9780140134629: God and the New Physics (Penguin Science)

In God and the New Physics, Paul Davies explains how science has come of age, and can now offer a surer path to divinity than religion.

Science is now on the verge of answering our most profound questions about the nature of existence. Here Paul Davies explains how the far-reaching discoveries of recent physics are revolutionizing our world and, in particular, throwing light on many of the questions formerly posed by religion, such as:

  • Why is there a universe?
  • Where did we come from?
  • What is life?
  • How is the world organized?

Examining subjects from the creation to the soul, free will to time, black holes to miracles, he travels through science and religion to show us that there is more to the world than meets the eye.

'Excellent ... explains with fluent simplicity some of the profoundest questions of cosmology'
  Daily Telegraph

'One of the finest science writers of this generation'
  Independent

'Paul Davies is our best guide to this strange new world'
  Observer

'A list of topics to which he refers would constitute an outline for a dictionary of contemporary scientific excitement. His style is clear, interesting, chatty'
  The Times Higher Education Supplement
